Notes about this historic site

1 The steep valley of Finham Brook is crossed by a line of c.1848 by means of a high embankment and (metal?) bridges over the stream itself and the road from Kenilworth to Stoneleigh. The line was doubled in the 1880’s by the addition of parallel bridges. The early bridges have sandstone abutments and would appear to have carried cast iron spans replaced by the present spans at a later date.
